    Korn kicked off their South American tour last night in Bogotá, Colombia, and they did so with a very special guest: Tye Trujillo, the 12-year-old son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo.

    Tye sat in for longtime bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, who is unable to join the nu-metal rockers for this leg of their Serenity of Suffering trek due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Tearing through Korn cuts like “Freak on a Leash”, “Somebody Someone”, and “Falling Away From Me”, “Good God”, and “Coming Undone”, Tye proved he’s a ferocious prodigy who’s clearly got his dad’s blood coursing through his veins. He even got a chance to emulate his pops during a performance of “Shoots and Ladders”, which fans report included a bit of Metallica’s “One”.

    Check out some fan-caught footage and pics below, followed by the setlist.
